Yes,* like Kjell I would like to hear more about the photo group.* Nice star shot,* I tried a meteor shower once,* with an old K1000 film camera.* My lens was damaged (which I didn't discover until later) and would focus beyond the infinity mark,* which made the pictures out of focus.* This link http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=443347* takes you to one that represented an 8 minute exposure.

Ira I could not even nail the star trail not to mention the meteor. Do not laugh at Torontonians: half of the people were frozen and had to take off because the temp dropped to around 8 degree from a daytime high of 22. I was prepared though. But my patience did not pay off. And my widest lens is only an 28mm+1.5. That sucks.

Look at Aug 13 posting. That was me (between a pretty young lady and cows in the background)

It was fun (if I do not bother with those Canon+Nikon talk)

(how dare you use iso 1600? pentax does not even support iso 100?)

Daniel, for the star shots they do have one valid point, since exposures will be long, especially for star trails, you don't really need the high ISO. A shot at ISO 200 for four times as long will produce results with less noise and thus sharper results. I will have to try this again sometime soon (I don't have a remote that allows long exposures yet so it may take a while).

OK now I have a face to put with the name, mine is always here, staring at everyone.

Ira,
I do not have a remote either. I just have to make do with 30s exposure. If needed, I still can clean up the noise.
